MonkeyConfig

MonkeyConfig is a simple configuration library for user scripts. It allows for easy creation of configuration dialog windows and takes care of storing and retrieving the configuration parameters for the script.

Usage Example

Tell your user script to use MonkeyConfig by placing a @require directive in the metadata section:

// ==UserScript==
// @name           AwesomeScript
// @require        https://raw.github.com/odyniec/MonkeyConfig/master/monkeyconfig.js

Then, call MonkeyConfig() to construct your configuration object:

var cfg = new MonkeyConfig({
    title: 'AwesomeScript Configuration',
    menuCommand: true,
    params: {
        font_size: {
            type: 'select',
            choices: [ 'Small', 'Medium', 'Large' ],
            default: 'Medium'
        },
        auto_adjust: {
            type: 'checkbox',
            default: true
        }
    }
});

And that's pretty much it. MonkeyConfig builds a configuration dialog based on the passed data. It also adds a menu item in the User Script Commands menu to open the configuration dialog.

At any time in your script, you can retrieve the value of a configuration parameter with the get() method:

var auto_adjust = cfg.get('auto_adjust');

and set a new value using the set() method:

cfg.set('font_size', 'Small');
